I look out and see the possibilities of my life.
A vast terrain that I’ve yet to explore.
It is growing and beautiful, ripe to be tilled.
There overhead flies an eagle showing me the heights that I can reach.
I hear the song. I see it. The new horizon.
The sun shines brightly so that I may see – the vision.
It’s up to me know. I must go outside.
I must risk the rain to reach the promised land.
It looks inviting but is still at a distance.
How can I ignore the sights of my destiny without betraying me?
No, I’ll go. Eyes open wide and heart cloaked in bravery.
There is no mountain that I can’t climb.
Everything I know of me I know because of you.
Without your love, my existence wouldn’t have a clue.
My literal identity is bridged inside your smile.
My heart reaches through eternity, connecting through the miles.
Thank you for being the one to teach me family has a meaning.
Keep guiding my path, I can feel your spirit intervening.
A marvelous artist with a perfect eye captured her better than a photographers’ lens.
Her countenance stood out from the shadows showing the victory over her pain.
Her porcelain skin was flawless and yet looked cold to touch.
She now lived comfortably in her soft, black velvet gown.
Although her hands seemed fragile, her face announced her strength.
Many years of training her body to behave gave the garment a graceful place to reside.
Yes, she was confident. She earned every bit of that emotion.
She fit into every expectation of her regal station, yet her mind knew she broke every mold.
I strolled along a crooked road, the journey was so long.
I had to pack for 30 days and sang a month of songs.
The trees were all so very tall. The sun, it shone so bright.
I wasn’t sure I would be found again that fateful night.
But when I resolved that all was lost, sure I would not survive;
I heard a voice call, in the midst of it all
“trash duty minutes should not exceed five!”
I assume she’d tired of her nest.
Maybe she just felt like the patio was best.
She is very protective of the place.
Not sure why she would need so much space.
Just not commonplace.
She runs everyone out of her patio room.
Other hummingbirds come by she’ll suddenly zoom.
Don’t go out to relax, even humans meet her doom.
You can’t be heard.
The vacant space surrounds you like a child in a womb.
It is never ending.
It is everywhere.
The quietness is so loud.
Away from the crowd
Where it’s quiet, my love
Let’s share this moment
In candlelight, my love
Just me and you at this table for two
Shut out the world’s sights and sound
Let’s enjoy our love
Would someone please help me find my keys?
I’ve looked in the living room, dining room, and on the kitchen sink.
I have checked the bedroom, refrigerator, everywhere that I could think.
Asked the dog, his head said no
Asked the cat, but, well you know
I am late and I’ve lost them once again
Wait! They are right here in my hand.
Looking deep at her reflection
“All these men – what will they think?
Eight in total in just one day?
Your reputation is blown no matter what you say
Seven dwarfs and a Prince, you should be ashamed
What would make you take an apple from a stranger that way
Even if you say, “I was drugged”, people will say, “yeah, okay”
All these years living as a virgin, how can Snow White go out this way.
Hold your head up Snow White, girl
You can get through this with pride
You have beauty, poise, and innocence
And the truth is on your side.”
